What’s so sacred about geometry, anyway?

Geometry in nature // Fibonacci sequence// Golden Ratio // Phi point // The same ratio Vitruvius saw in the human body – 1 to PHI (1.618) – exists in every part of nature, from swimming fish to swirling planets. This divine ratio, or divine proportion, has been called the building block of all life.
